"Not Gonna Get Us" is a song recorded by Russian music duo t.A.T.u. for their first English-language studio album 200 km/h in the Wrong Lane (2002). It was originally released as "Nas Ne Dogonyat" (Russian: Нас не догонят, IPA: [nas nʲe dɐˈɡonʲət]; translation: "[They] Won't Catch Us") on their debut album 200 По Встречной (2001). The song was written by Sergio Galoyan, Trevor Horn, Elena Kiper and Valery Polienko, while production was handled by Horn. The song was included on the duo's compilation album The Best (2006). The English version was released on 5 May 2003, by Interscope Records as the second single from the album. Musically, the song is a Eurodance-inspired song, and lyrically it talks about the group running away from people as they don't understand their love towards one another.

"Not Gonna Get Us" received mixed to positive reviews from music critics, praising the production and highlighted the song as an album standout, however some critics were not impressed by the lyrical content. It was, however, a commercial success worldwide, peaking inside the top-ten in countries including Finland, Italy, Austria, Sweden, Belgium, Ireland and the United Kingdom. The single also peaked at number one on the US Billboard Dance Club Songs chart, becoming the duo's only number-one single on the US component charts.

An accompanying music video was filmed for the single, where it starts with the girls getting a mugshot, until escaping to a truck, where they drive off through snow in Siberia. The video was directed by Ivan Shapovalov, who also features in a cameo appearance in the video as a construction worker. The song also received a minor controversial image, where it featured a more rebel image. The song has also been performed on all of the duo's concert tours, and was also performed at the 2003 MTV Movie Awards. In 2009, t.A.T.u. played a special concert featuring the song at the Eurovision Song Contest with a Russian Army Choir, the Alexandrov Ensemble.

The words "нас не догонят" made their way into 2006 Russian Dictionary of Modern Quotes (Slovar sovremennykh tsitat). In February 2014, during the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in Sochi, t.A.T.u performed "Нас не догонят". Additionally, the song was sung later in the ceremony when Russia's competitors entered the stadium.
